I'm Back!!!!

Wow, I said that I would take a little break for the weddings, but then the very next week, canning hit. Of course as most of you know, I love to canning so I didn't mind, but it does take a lot of time. Anyway, speaking of Canning, we just finished our club projects for September and of course I had to use the Perfectly Preserved stamp set.
Card Recipe:
Raspberry Ripple CS
Coredinations-Early Espresso CS
Harvest DSP
Lucky Limeade CS
Raspberry Ripple Ribbon
This next card was cased from Stampin' Connection. Actually they all were. I love that place. Fall is my most favorite time of year so we had to do a Fall card.
Card Recipe:
Early Espresso CS
Harvest DSP
Wonderfall Stamp Set & Die
Bronze Button
Early Espresso Baker's Twine
Last, but certianly not least is this cute little Jar full of chocolate!! This little thing hold 4 Hershey's nuggets. Isn't it so cute?!!!
Here are the dimensions to make this baby:
Cut out two canning jars & lids
There's a little box in between the jars & the dimensions are:
Box: 1 1/2 x 4 1/2
Score @ 1/4 & 1 1/4 on the 1 1/2 side
Score @ 1 1/2 & 3 on the 4 1/2 side
There's also a little piece of paper in between the two jars on the inside to hold the nuggets in.
Top over: 1 1/4 x 1 1/2
15" ribbon tied around
Nugget wrapper: 1 x 3
Here is the link to the place I found this. She does a really good video.
I hope you like everything.

Here We GO!!!!

Okay Ladies... I've been wanting to do this for a long, long time. It scares me to death to blog because it's a commitment. I don't want to be one of those bloggers who only posts every other year. Anyway, I hope that I can be good at this. Anyway, here is my first project and I have to say that I gave my self a good pat on the back for it.

My sister Caitlyn & my brother Adam are getting married so we decided to through a double shower. First I made the arrow image in MDS and then I printed it on Lucky Limeade cardstock. Next I folded it in thirds. Last I added some glitter paper to the ends to look like gum. It was so cute in real life.
